    Looks very European to me. Considering the meaning of the word Iran as land of Aryans, could people like these have been living in Iran in the distant past?

    He looks basically pred. Dinarid with some Iranid influences. The majority of his heritage could be old pre-Balkan with Near Eastern/Persian influences. He doesn't look full European. He might pass as a Sicilian but that's about it.

    Dinarid??? He doesn"t seem very Dinaric to me. He reminds me a bit of the ideal Nordic sculpture:



    But thanks for your insights anyhow.

    He looks Dinarid some Mediterranean. Maybe there is some Nordic influence in there somewhere. I see where you would see this, the features are very refined. Looks very much Balkan.

    The subject has been classified here.

    This Iranian I believe is quite so Dinarid in phenotype aswell as Iranid.

On average they are also more hairy (eyebrows alone prove that usually) and lighter, have even a remarkable percentage of light eyes, which might relate them to the Nordoid spectrum, which is just natural if considering, that the Nordoid and Iranoid spectra had once a direct border in Central Asia. There is also a fluent border to the Mediterranid in the West, Nordoid in the North, Nordindid in the East and of course, Arabid in the South - so Iranids being in a way in between those other Aurignacoid racial types of the Europid race with specific characteristics of their own.

    Irano-Afghan+/Gracil/Pontic Mediterranean.
    Irano-Afghans are related to the ancient Corded branch, so thats why you might get that little Nordic impression.

    I'm not an expert, but..

    He really looks identical to certain faces on Greek statues (and I've seen alot of them), seriously he looks more like those faces than the modern Mediterraneans. The nose, chin, mouth, eye sockets, everything.

    I dont see any Nordic features on him. For me is like a Dinarized East Med.
